WWE Money In The Bank 2024 Preview

The WWE Money in the Bank with two big ladder matches, plus Damian Priest facing Seth Rollins, Sami Zayn against Bron Breakker, and more.

It is yet another WWE PLE outside of the United States although Money in the Bank isn’t that far because it’s in my home country of Canada in Toronto, which is about two hours from where I live. Unfortunately, I’m not going to make it to the show because I will be at a family wedding in Cleveland, Ohio (about a five-hour drive) on Saturday, which is interesting because that’s where SummerSlam is next month. Anyway, due to being at the wedding on Saturday and driving there on Friday, I won’t see Smackdown or review it and I won’t get around to the Money in the Bank review until Sunday afternoon or evening when I get home. So please be patient with me when it comes to that review. There’s also NXT Heatwave on Sunday night, but I may get around to that review on Monday morning.

I think the card for Money in the Bank is pretty good. I think all five matches will be good with the chance of being great and maybe even exceptional in some cases. I know in this Triple H Era that he likes booking cards with just five matches. I was hoping for maybe a sixth on this show. I hope that at SummerSlam next month there are more than five matches because that’s a huge show and they should get more people on the card. Let’s get to it.


Women’s Money in the Bank Contract Ladder Match: IYO SKY vs. Chelsea Green vs. Lyra Valkyria vs. Tiffany Stratton vs. Naomi vs. Zoey Stark

It’s an interesting group of women in this match especially since the likes of Bianca Belair and Jade Cargill didn’t qualify for this match. Neither one of them were pinned, but they also failed to win. If either Belair or Cargill were in this match then they would be considered favorites to win. Since they are not going to be part of it, the match feels a bit wide open.

If I had to narrow it down to three possible winners I’m going with Tiffany Stratton as my first choice, then Chelsea Green as an entertaining option and Naomi would probably be the third option. Stratton is clearly a star on the rise and she’s already been in the Women’s Title picture on Smackdown even though she hasn’t been part of the brand for very long. They have recently started putting Stratton with Nia Jax as allies. The Queen of the Ring Jax will face Bayley at SummerSlam, so they could do a story where Jax becomes the Women’s Champion while her buddy Stratton has Money in the Bank, which could lead to a lot of interesting teases of a cash in after that.

Ther reason I mentioned my fellow Canadian Chelsea Green as an option is because she’s such an entertaining heel character who is terrific at comedy wrestling. I think if she were to win Money in the Bank it would be a way to give her some more credibility with the fans. They could also keep making her a comedy heel who has MITB and can’t seem to cash in at the right time.

Naomi came back to WWE earlier this year, so I think there needs to be some kind of plan for her because otherwise, she’s going to get lost in the shuffle. Winning Money in the Bank could really boost her a lot.

IYO SKY is awesome and as last year’s winner she can be a threat to win, but I doubt she will pick up the victory. Lyra Valkyria got a good push in the Queen of the Ring tournament. I just don’t see her as a viable winner. Then there’s Zoey Stark, who is solid as a performer. The problem is she gets poor reactions from the crowd. Compare her to somebody like Stratton, who elicits pops all the time, and it’s not even close.

I’m going with Tiffany Stratton to win, but it’s definitely not a sure thing as a prediction.

Winner: Tiffany Stratton


Intercontinental Championship: Sami Zayn (c) vs. Bron Breakker

It has been an entertaining three months for Sami Zayn as the Intercontinental Champion. I thought his feud with Chad Gable was terrific and produced some great matches. Bron Breakker was pushed to this spot due to taking out Ricochet while also having impressive matches. The weird thing is that Bron didn’t win a big match to get this title shot. There were multiple DQ finishes involving the likes of Sheamus and Ludwig Kaiser, yet here Bron is getting his first title shot on the main roster. Bron did pick up wins against Ilja Dragunov and Ricochet on the road to this match too.

I think Zayn is the perfect opponent for Breakker due to Sami’s ability to sell moves as well as anybody on the main roster. Bron’s all about the power game, but he’s also extremely athletic and getting better all the time. Being in the ring with a guy as talented as Zayn will help Bron get better too because Zayn is truly one of the best in-ring performers in WWE.

This match feels like a title change to me. I’d like Zayn to have a longer reign, but I think it’s important to get a title on a young guy like Breakker and give him a dominant title run. Zayn doesn’t “need” the title as much as Bron does. I think Zayn will take a beating for most of the match, make the big comeback, go for the Helluva Kick and instead of hitting it, there’s Bron with a Spear for the pinfall win to become the new IC Champion.

Winner AND NEW Intercontinental Champion: Bron Breakker


WWE Money In The Bank 2024 Preview

Cody Rhodes, Randy Orton & Kevin Owens vs. The Bloodline – Solo Sikoa, Tama Tonga, Tonga Loa & Jacob Fatu

(WWE has not specified what three members of The Bloodline will be in the match)

There is uncertainty about this match because we don’t know who is on The Bloodline’s team. Jacob Fatu may miss the show taking place in Toronto due to his past legal issues. Jacob was arrested at age 18 due to a robbery, which may prevent him from being able to enter Canada. Due to that, The Bloodline trio at Money in the Bank could be Solo Sikoa, Tama Tonga & Tonga Loa while Jacob stays home. If Jacob can be there, I’d absolutely put him in the match while leaving Tama or Loa out of the match.

It is expected that at SummerSlam, Cody Rhodes is likely going to defend the WWE Championship against Solo Sikoa. If that’s the case then I think Solo should get the win in this match. While Solo pinning Cody could really boost Solo, I think it’s more likely that Owens or even Orton take the pin in this match. They could also do a miscommunication spot where Cody hits Orton by accident or the other way around and that can cause issues for them down the road. I think at SummerSlam, Roman Reigns will probably return to confront Solo, so I doubt there’s a title change.

This should be very good tag team match that the babyface team is going to carry due to how popular they are and how experienced they are as veterans who know what they are doing out there. Tama and Loa are okay in the ring while Solo is solid, but I wouldn’t say any of them are that exceptional. I think the energy brought by the babyface team will make it fun. If it was a Tornado Tag it would be even better. We saw that already with Orton & Owens against Solo & Tama, though, so this might be a regular tag.

I’m going with Solo getting the win for his team.

Winners: The Bloodline Solo Sikoa, Tama Tonga & Tonga Loa (and Jacob Fatu?)


World Heavyweight Championship: Damian Priest vs. Seth “Freakin” Rollins

Welcome back Seth Rollins after being out of the ring for the last three months. It’s good to see him healthy and back in action. I certainly didn’t expect it so soon, but I’m happy to see it. I think just giving Rollins a title match right after coming back is an interesting decision. The reason why I say interesting is because a potential SummerSlam match between King GUNTHER and Rollins as World Champion would likely be a better match than Gunther going against Priest. Gunther/Rollins has the heel/babyface dynamic while Gunther and Priest are both heels, so I’m not sure if it would work. That’s why I think there’s certainly a chance that Rollins could win a match like this.

While I just spent a paragraph talking about Rollins as the potential winner, I’m really going to go with Damian Priest to retain the World Heavyweight Title. He’s held the title for three months that Rollins was out and I picked Priest to lose to Drew McIntyre at Clash at the Castle three weeks ago, yet here we are with Priest still as the champion (thanks to CM Punk). I’m starting to believe in Priest having a meaningful title reign.

This is one of those matches where I have no idea how they are going to book the finish, so I’d rather just sit back and see what they come up with.

Winner: Damian Priest


Men’s Money in the Bank Contract Ladder Match: Jey Uso vs. Carmelo Hayes vs. Andrade vs. Chad Gable vs. LA Knight vs. Drew McIntyre

I like the field that WWE put together for the Men’s Money in the Bank Contract Ladder Match. I think you could make a good case for five of the guys to win. Andrade is the one who, to me, just isn’t likely to win this match. I think Andrade will hit some big moves and do well. I just don’t see him as a threat to win.

It seems obvious that LA Knight is going to face Logan Paul for the US Title at SummerSlam, so the question is could Paul be there for this match to cost Knight the win? It certainly could happen. I think it probably will happen. I also think Knight will beat Paul in that SummerSlam match assuming it happens.

We know that Chad Gable just signed a new deal with WWE recently. I think that there’s a chance for Gable to win. However, I also think his chances of winning are hurt by the Wyatt Sicks group “attacking” him in the past and also taunting him this past Monday on Raw. Perhaps they have Gable climb the ladder, then the lights go out and suddenly he’s been taking away by the Wyatt Sicks group. That’s what might happen here.

Carmelo Hayes is the star on the rise who is a former NXT Champion and a cocky wrestler that got into this match by pinning Randy Orton in their triple threat match. It might be too soon for Melo to get this kind of push. However, if it did happen I certainly wouldn’t mind it.

That leaves me with the two guys who I think have the best chance to win: Jey Uso and Drew McIntyre. If you check out the poster for this event, WWE changed it from having a bunch of different people on it and instead they put Jey on it while holding the briefcase that says “YEET” on it. Is it Yeet in the Bank time? I think it might be. Remember, Jey was picked first in the WWE Draft on the night he was eligible, so that shows that the company values him as a main event level performer. The fans love Jey too. He makes sense as Mr. Money in the Bank.

Drew McIntyre is certainly a possibility to win here. We know he has had the long-term CM Punk story that has seen Punk cost Drew the World Heavyweight Title twice, so Drew beat up Punk so badly that Punk had to leave the arena in a stretcher a few weeks ago. A scenario that I’m sure some people are predicting is for Drew

I’m going to roll with Jey Uso as the winner, but I think McIntyre definitely has a shot here. I’d be surprised if any of the other four guys won.

Winner: Jey Uso



The Match I’m Looking Forward To The Most

It is probably Men’s Money in the Bank because I think there are a lot of ways it can go.

The Match I Care About The Least

I really have nothing for this. I like everything on the card.

Longest Match

Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match at around 23 minutes.

Shortest Match

Sami Zayn vs. Bron Breakker around 15 minutes.

Excitement Level on a Scale of 1-10 (1 being low, 10 being high)

I’m at 7.75 out of 10 for this show. I love the Money in the Bank Ladder Matches and I think they did a nice job of picking the wrestlers taking part in the show. The Bloodline tag against the trio of Rhodes/Orton/Owens should be entertaining while the Priest/Rollins match will be interesting to see how that is booked. Then there’s the Breakker/Zayn match that I really think could steal the show if they get time and come up with a smart finish for it. My pals in Toronto should be a hot crowd too, so I’m looking forward to Money in the Bank.

I’ll be back with a review of WWE Money in the Bank on TJRWrestling.net on Sunday, so check that out when it’s posted. You can also tweet me on X/Twitter at @johnreport as well.
